Shakira Dishes on her New Spanish Album!

If you like Shakira’s song “Gitana” then you’ll be excited to hear that her upcoming all-Spanish album, titled Sale El Sol, promises to be a triumphant return to her roots.

“My new album is completely different from ‘Loba,’” Shakira told in Miami at the Premios Juventud. “It reminds me a lot of Donde Estan Los Ladrones and Pies Descalzos. It’s called Sale El Sol and it’ll be ready starting in September, I hope."

Shaki seems excited to return to a sound she is familiar with. "I’m really happy. It’s an album that I wrote with my heart in my hand," she gushed. "It has a lot of romantic songs, a lot of rockera tracks, and a very prominent Latin side to it. I went to the Dominican Republic to look for new sounds, merengue and “callejero” sounds, and I found some amazing things. It’s an album that’s very diverse, but also very personal. I recognize a lot of myself in it.”

We can't wait to hear what the international pop star has in store for us next!
